Chapter Meeting: Bumble Bee Conservation in Subalpine Meadows

Meeting held via Zoom: Wednesday, February 21st at 7PM

Bumble Bee Conservation in Subalpine Meadows (Zoom)

Jim Davis will present results from a five-year study of flower phenology and bumble bee foraging at Heather Meadows. In a typical year, observed abundant and continuous floral resources for the duration of the growing season. During the exceptionally early spring of 2015, flowering was early for many species, while the duration of flowering increased for a few species and decreased substantially for others. These findings preview the potential impacts of climate change on flowering plants and bumble bees in subalpine meadows of the Pacific Northwest.
